May 17th was yet another hot day in Chicago. While many were out and about, a young black male age 17 attempted to rob a hair salon on 68th and Perry the Englewood community.

However, things didn’t go as he planned, shots  were fired and when the gun smoke cleared, the 17-year-old black male laid dead on the streets. An off-duty female Cook County Sheriff Officer fired 12 shots at the child and killed him on the scene. For a moment, the scene was tense but later calmed down as the teen laid dead in the streets.
